Marriage Equality Could Come To Colombia Soon

It appears marriage equality could be only two votes from reality in Colombia.

From The Perchy Bird:

Sources close to the Court say that the magistrates will vote against one conservative judge’s proposal to annul marriages registered by lower courts, keep civil unions as the only option for couples, and state that only Congress can change marriage laws. The expected vote is 6-3 to defeat this opinion.

Next would come the final vote on a counter-opinion to legalize same-sex marriage. The same 6 out of 9 judges are expected to extend the right to marry to gay couples.

The two pending votes may come on two different days. The media says that everyone will have to wait until after Holy Week for any final action.
